The Law Review was started as the Southern Law Quarterly[3] by Rufus Carrollton Harris, the school's twelfth dean.[4] Charles E. Dunbar, Jr., the civil service reformer who became a Tulane law professor, served on the board of advisory editors of Tulane Law Review from its inception until his death in 1959.[5]

A 1937 Time magazine about Rufus Harris describes the Tulane Law Review as "nationally famed."[6]

The Law Review was most recently cited by the United States Supreme Court on April 27, 2010.[7]


Membership to the Tulane Law Review is conferred upon Tulane law students who have "outstanding scholastic records or demonstrated ability in legal research and writing."[8] Specifically, membership is chosen based on a student's law school grades and/or performance in an annual anonymous writing competition.
